Posted in Announcements, Digital Collections

From page of Daily ReveilleLSU Libraries is partnering with the LSU Manship School of Mass Communication to digitize LSU’s award-winning student newspaper. The Daily Reveille dates back to 1897 and features articles from significant eras of history.  The Daily Reveille’s student-led staff has covered significant national and international events, including the Jim Crow era, World War I and World War II, the civil rights movement and desegregation, the women’s movement, Korean War, Vietnam War and 9/11. The Daily Reveille’s stories have helped to illuminate the political, intellectual and cultural history of Louisiana and the American South.

Digitizing The Daily Reveille material helps maintain and honor journalism from past Reveille writers and provides instant access to the material. Digitized materials will be publicly accessible online and keyword-searchable, ensuring immediate, easy access and high usability. Scholars and learners everywhere who aspire to better understand the rich intellectual landscape of America will benefit from this project.

An LSU alumnus and former editor for The Daily Reveille during the civil rights era has donated $25,000 toward the $100,000 funding goal of digitizing all The Daily Reveille collections. To learn more about donating to the remaining $75,000 goal of the initiative visit http://www.lsufoundation.org/s/1585/17/interior.aspx?sid=1585&gid=1&pgid=2894.
